Repeat Dispensing Service
We also offer non dispensing patients who are taking certain long term medication a repeat dispensing service, whereby your repeat medication will be authorised for periods of six to twelve months. Your prescriptions will be held by your choice of pharmacy, where you can collect your medication without having to return to the surgery every month to submit your repeat request. Please discuss this with a GP or pharmacist if you are interested in this service.
All patients on repeat medication should have their medicines and the need for them reviewed from time to time (at least annually). Patients with long term illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease and asthma will be called to nurse led clinics. Others will see a doctor or practice pharmacist. If you are not sure how or when your medicines should be reviewed please ask a member of our prescribing team.
Warfarin monitoring and dosing is offered in regular clinics at the practice. Please book into the Warfarin Monitoring (INR) Clinic as required.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
